    I don’t believe these people spend all that money only to make a small wage. Maybe the amount they report is smaller then the amount they actually make. I always say that if something doesn’t make sense, then no doubt it’s a lie.

    Can anyone tell me where Richard Tisei has been during all the campaign ads that we have seen on TV during this election season. I have not seen one photo of him with Charlie Baker either on the campaign trail or in the news. Who is this man?

    Thanks for your response.
